Dates & Location:Mark your calendars to attend the 2021 Texas Fruit Conference IN PERSON, October 11th and 12th at the City of New Braunfels Civic Convention Center. https://www.nbtexas.org/2515/CivicConvention-Center

 

Fruit Recovery 2021: The historic 2021 February freeze was impactful for many of our important fruit crops in Texas. We continue to learn much about cold hardiness and cold protection strategies that worked (and didn’t work). Expect this subject to be a feature this year as we look back and once again consider Texas’ fruit growing future.

 

Intro to Fruit Growing Workshop: Our 2020 virtual conference included a half-day program aimed at educating new growers on how to start a fruit production business from the ground up. We plan to offer this special session again for anyone interested in starting a fruit orchard for serious commercial production, personal pleasure, ag exemption projects or somewhere in between.

 

Tried & True vs Brand New: Our goal with the main conference program is to meet the diverse need for information among our participants by developing educational topics that cover proven and traditional fruit crops in Texas (peaches, blackberries, strawberries and pears) as well as new crops, varieties and growing techniques that may open doors for new markets or greater economic sustainability.

 

Expanded Exhibits: The 2021 Texas Fruit Conference is the 10th Anniversary, and to mark the success of this event, we are going big---big on space! 

 

Feedback: We will again be seeking your input on topical needs, programs and questions that you want to see at this event. Please look for an opportunity to participate in our program planning survey very soon!
